Because this magazine is from the BBC, it often has articles which are linked to TV programmes such as Antiques Roadshow, which means it's for the popular end of the market. It's not boring and it's a good read. This magazine is not for the DIY enthusiast; it mainly features items that can be bought rather than made, and the whole thing is aimed at the higher end of the market than, say Real Homes or Your Homes. But there should be things of interest to anyone interested in homemaking or collecting antiques. There are interiors of historical and stately homes, and if you are interested in the historical side of things (rather than just making ... Read the complete review

I'm currently nearing the end of a £1 for 3 copies trial for this magazine. I'm interesting in interiors so thought I would try this out.

How many magazines do you pick up and find that you have read them in a very short time because it was advert after advert after advertorial? This is not the case here, given that you have chosen to buy it because you are interested in Homes and Antiques you will find plenty to interest you. I have never read the magazine without making notes of companies that they have featured. I also always take away ideas. In fact, until recently when I was decluttering, I had kept almost 100 back copies for reference when I redecorated. They usefully have reader offers for lovely items to purchase at special offer prices. As to the antiques element, again very interesting ... Read the complete review
